Re: How should I teach?

One thing I would say you shouldn't do when teaching which words use ie and ei is that silly "I before e, except after c" phrase, as it's totally wrong. So many words don't conform to that standard such as 'weird' and many others. I don't think there's any trick to learning the ordering of...

Re: Sunglasses and earphones in the workplace !?

My mum gets terrible migraines so is always wearing sunglasses where she works due to glare on the computer monitor, the same as you. I don't think there's any problem with doing so.

Re: This Site Has Been So Helpful

I visit the site every day as well. I don't think it's futile. If just a couple of people would agree to visit the site every day and contribute, I think this site could thrive. The weird part is that the Dyspraxic Teens site I went to as a kid was really popular, but now it's totally dead. I met l...

Re: Perseverate on Negative Thoughts?

My negative thoughts often manifest themselves physically when I'm by myself, like I'll react in the same way I would had something really happened. Strange, that!

Re: I prefer walk in lonely streets and woods.

I'm quite an anxious duck too, but I wouldn't say that I need to get drunk to ask for stuff at the shops, at least. I think some counselling or CBT could be helpful for your anxiety? It's not much of a solution to get drunk every time you need something.

Me too, but I'm afraid there's not much one can do about these things. I was visiting every day at one point, but it became a little futile. :c

Re: Cerebrum issues

Could be that too, although that's as general as saying it is neurological, so I assumed the query was more granular. :)

Re: Hypersensitivity To Temperature

Interesting. I always thought myself to be some kind of mutant considering I can endure much harder cold than anyone around (I can be lightly weared with only a short and a shirt during small rain and feel better than my friends while they're wearing heavy stuff and coats), but I also feel the heat...

Re: My Blog

Welcome to the site. I'm into creative writing, which is why I'm nearly finished my first novel, after doing so many drafts, I'm a perfectionist. A couple of mistakes or if something doesn't look right, then it can mean the whole of the story is started from the beginning. I have an online Canadian...

Re: Quick question?

I am also good at facts about general history and politics. I am currently in a quiz team with my friends, and for the past couple of weeks, I have been carrying the team by answering the most obscure questions, and my answers have been right and the other members of the team overruled me due to th...

I have a terrible memory, especially for lyrics in songs. It sucks, because I love music but can never sing along properly.

You may have ADHD. It is commonly comorbid with Dyspraxia. It is worth speaking to a psychiatrist about that. :)

Re: Hypersensitivity To Temperature

I really dislike the heat. I hate the feeling of my clothes sticking uncomfortably to my skin. I normally sleep with a window open, and I hate having the heating on, in my house, when I start complaining if someone has turned the heating on to a level that I feel uncomfortable with. I have pretty l...
